The Logical Socialist Democracy of Zess is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Charlie David Hanson with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.785 billion Zessians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital District. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Zessian economy, worth 538 trillion exchange tickets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 142,352 exchange tickets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. Crime is totally unknown. Zess's national animal is the immortal jellyfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Moderatorism.

Zess is ranked 15,559th in the world and 478th in the South Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 53.38 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
